EMC sports - The Nepean Raiders beat the Ottawa Junior Senators in a game seven match at Jim Durrell Arena on April 10. The 2-1 win allows the Raiders to advance to the Central Canada Hockey League’s finals, where they will play the Cornwall Colts. The Colts bested the Carleton Place Canadians in their game seven match with the same score of 21. Before the final game Raiders coach Peter Goulet said his players were “determined to win the game and get the job done.” “Game seven is what hockey’s all about,” he said. Mitchell Herlihey got a first period goal for Nepean. The second goal

came from Kenneth Neil in the second period. Nepean’s goalie Ryan Mulder stopped 29 of 30 shots on goal. Over the season Goulet said the team improved on defensive play in their own end. “It’s been a good season, there has been a lot of parity,” Goulet said. “There’s only a nine point difference between the first team and the seventh.” The Raiders headed into the final match against the Senators after a 3-2 win at the Nepean Sportsplex on April 5 in game six. The Raiders were set to open the CCHL finals against the Colts on April 13 in Cornwall. For the full schedule visit The teams will be vying for a chance to compete for the Fred Page Cup in Truro, N.S.

EMC news - A Nepean man is continuing his fight against the onslaught of Multiple Sclerosis. John Kersley, a 67-year-old vicepresident of the Manotick Legion was diagnosed with the disease in 1992. He has been attending the MS Society of

B?:7R?D7 OII:

Canada’s annual fundraising walk ever since. Kersley, who went to his doctor complaining of numbness, had to wait two years for a diagnosis. “I went in and told her (his doctor) and she asked me to close my eyes and identify what she had given me to hold,” Kersley said. The item – which turned out to be

a safety pin – felt like a paper clip to Kersely due to the decreased feeling in his fingers. Now diagnosis happens as soon as the patient is able to get an MRI, but treatment is still difficult since no two cases are the same. Kersley has secondary regressive MS, which means the symptoms of the disease steadily worsen. Unlike relapsing, remitting MS – which is characterized by attacks that can leave people blind or without other motor functions for anywhere from an hour to a week – Kersely’s form of the disease has no real treatment.

Kersley said he is skeptical of the Venus treatment for MS. The costly ($15,000 a treatment) operation is done through balloon angioplasty and stenting. It’s designed to increase blood flow through from the brain. “It’s a neurological disease, it seems removed from blood,” Kersley said, preferring to find a way to live with the disease rather than look for a miracle cure. Kersley went on long-term disability from his work as a commercial banker with TD 15 years ago. See MOWING, page 5

MPP tries to block DND move to Nepean Nepean councillor says issue not one of language

EMC news - Ottawa-OrlĂŠans MPP Phil McNeelyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complaint to the commissioner of official languages turns a fiscal decision into a language issue, said College Coun. Rick Chiarelli. The move of nearly 10,000 Department of National Defence employees into the Carling Avenue campus that once housed Nortel

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just about French versus English, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the legislation.â&#x20AC;? PHIL MCNEELY

was decided three years ago. The federal government bought the building for $208 million in 2010 and estimated there would be an additional $623 million in renovation costs to bring the building up to the Defence departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs. But McNeely said the federal government didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look at the social and economic costs of what he believes will be a mass migration to the west from OrlĂŠans.

McNeely said the move would alter transit patterns because OrlĂŠans residents use public transit much more than people in Kanata or other west-end suburbs. He added that under the Official Languages Act, the federal government is bound to protect OrlĂŠans because the community is composed of a unique, linguistic minority. Chiarelli said it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appropriate to make the move a French-versus-English debate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where was he three years ago when they made the decision?â&#x20AC;? Chiarelli asked. Renovations to the Moodie Drive and Robertson Road intersection have been planned and allocated by the city, based on the planned influx of new employees on Carling Avenue, Chiarelli said, adding the city has set aside $3 million for the work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have spent money, done planning, now is not the time to challenge the move,â&#x20AC;? he said. But the challenge isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the first objection he has had, McNeely said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been writing letters, and trying to halt the move for the last three years,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding talks with lawyers are what gave him the

idea to challenge the move under the Official Languages Act. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just about French versus English, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the legislation,â&#x20AC;? McNeely said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The federal government has a responsibility to protect the community of OrlĂŠans.â&#x20AC;? McNeely said the move of the RCMP headquarters to Barrhaven has already drained jobs from the east-end community. This has resulted in drops in housing starts and

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The province just invested millions in a francophone community centre on the site of the former Grant alternative school. Obviously they believe there is a francophone population in the west end.â&#x20AC;?

Chiarelli said the city has offered incentives for businesses to set up shop in OrlĂŠans, citing the St. Joseph community improvement plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as much French in the west end, but businesses will adapt to offer bilingual service,â&#x20AC;?

Local grad uncorks second spot at world sommelier meet Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Véronique Rivest has a lot to toast. The graduate of Algonquin College’s sommelier program placed second in a worldwide competition hosted by the International Sommelier Association. The competition – which ended on March 29 – was held in Tokyo. Rivest described the event as a kind of wine tasting Olympics. She had to qualify at the national level in order to compete. “I also won for the Americas in the continental competition so Canada was able to send two representatives to worlds,” Rivest said. Rivest was to be the toast of the college on April 10, as well-wishers gathered for a fundraising dinner to help defray the costs of her international travel. The competition paid for her three-days-stay during the event, but Rivest went to Japan a week early so she could be at the top of her game. She said it’s much more than simple wine tasting. “We have to know about foods that pair with wines, the laws governing alcohol in a bunch of different regions, the geology and the

strains of grapes... There is a lot to keep on top of,” Rivest said Rivest cut back her hours at work to study and travel in an effort to be named the world’s top sommelier. Rivest said without the support of her husband and Algonquin College she wouldn’t have been able to do it. “Everyone has been really supportive,” she said. It’s been great.” The world sommelier competition happens every three years in a different location; Rivest said she hasn’t yet decided if she will compete again. She said she likes teaching because she is always learning and talking about her passion. “I will have to think about it; there’s something about ending on a high note,” Rivest said. As for the wine world, Rivest said it’s an exciting time to be a sommelier in Canada, because it is one of the only markets where wine consumption is growing. “There are a lot of great wines out of Prince Edward County,” she said. “I just love exploring and learning new things.” Rivest is a two-time winner of the Best Sommelier of Canada. She placed 12th in the World’s Best Sommelier competition in Chile in 2010.


Véronique Rivest took second place in a worldwide sommelier competition on March 29. She was the first women to make it to the podium at the competition.

Mowing lawns part of John Kersley’s summer routine Continued from page 1

Back then he could still walk around his yard. A few years later he used a walking stick, then a walker and now a wheelchair. He also used to crew on sailboats during race nights at the Nepean Sailing Club. He can’t do it anymore, but despite his limitations, he maintains a positive outlook. “My doctor told me I was lucky I didn’t have symptoms before I was 40 because it would have progressed a lot more quickly,” Kersley said. He might be in a wheelchair, but

My doctor told me I was lucky I didn’t have symptoms before I was 40 because it would have progressed a lot more quickly JOHN KERSLEY

Kersley mows the front lawn for 14 of his neighbours in his neighbourhood off of Prince of Wales Drive. He also goes around in his wheelchair propelling himself with his left leg so he can get at weeds. The Kersley home is filled with friends each summer as the neighbourhood kids gather to use the pool. The pool is open to anyone, anytime. “We have a very close neighbourhood,” Kersley said. “I don’t need to go on vacation in the summer; we love having all the people come to visit.” Winters are harder on Kersley since he can’t really go out, but he fills up the time with volunteering for the Manotick Legion, the Manotick Probus Club and the Rotary Club of West Ottawa.

He started volunteering with the legion when it burned down several years ago and was part of the rebuilding campaign. With the Probus Club he said he’s proud to be part of educating seniors on the ABCs of Fraud. “We have a team of 10 volunteers and we work with the police,” he said. Despite enjoying the work he does, Kersley said he might have to cut back. His wife Trudi helps him keep track of all his projects though. “His brain is a bit like a computer with not enough memory, if there is too much on it, it kind of shuts down,” she said. The neurological side effects are one of the reasons he left his job at the bank. Kersley used to be in charge of commercial applications and had trouble keep track of all the phases between, proposals, permit and construction. But as long as he can, Kersley said he will continue to help out in the community. The love of people and the desire to keep busy is one of the reasons he keeps coming back. The team of walkers will be comprised of Kersley, Trudi and members from the legion. The team will be called Red Fridays. Last year, Kersley managed to raise $5,800. He has no idea how much he has raised over the last two decades, but said that he hopes to top last year’s total. Organizers for the walk are expecting 1,200 walkers at Tunney’s Pasture on April 28. They hope to raise $320,000. For more information on the walk or to donate to Kersley’s team, visit

Farmers protest modified alfalfa Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - The release of genetically-modified alfalfa could be the last straw for a dwindling bee population, said bee keeper Susan Hamilton. Hamilton, along with four dozen farmers from across Ottawa and the valley came out to protest the potential release of herbicide tolerant alfalfa at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency headquarters in Nepean on April 9. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have had bees since 1973 and the population is dwindling already,â&#x20AC;? Hamilton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will eventually kill them off.â&#x20AC;? Hamilton added that pollinating the alfalfa genetically modified to include the herbicide Roundup could hurt and eventually kill bees. Forage Genetics International has

applied Monsantoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roundup Ready technology to alfalfa and Canada already approved it for health and environmental release in 2005. Variety registration with the agency is the last step before it can become commercially available. Demonstrators with the National Farmers Union and the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network hoped to halt the process by letting the powers that be know how they and consumers feel. Alfalfa is a high-protein feed for dairy cows, beef cattle, lambs, poultry and pigs, but because labelling for genetically modified crops is not mandatory in Canada, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely consumers will know they are eating altered crops. Lucy Sharratt, a co-ordinator with the action network, said 38 communities across the country organized demonstrations in a four-week pe-


Susan Hamilton, a bee keeper out of South Hamilton, says geneticallymodified alfalfa could harm the honey bee. Hamilton, and four dozen other farmers from Ottawa and the valley protest outside the Canadian Food Inspection Agency on April 9. riod. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seventeen communities in eastern Ontario were holding demonstrations today,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding eastern Canada is where the genetically-modified

alfalfa would be rolled out first. Lauretta Rice, whose son runs a dairy farm in Douglas, Ont., went to the protest because she said the introduction of the Monsanto technology would kill off the more than 200 varieties of the plant that her son pro-

duces locally. Alfalfa is a perennial plant that is pollinated. The introduction of a genetically-modified strain will crosspollinate with organic forms and threaten the livelihood of local farmers, she said. The Canadian Forage and Grassland Association released a report the potential impact of Roundup Ready alfalfa on Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forage industry in June 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The introduction of RRA, and subsequent GE (genetically-engineered) alfalfa traits, into Canada could have a negative impact on certain export seed, forage, honey and the entire organic industry,â&#x20AC;? the report reads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;RRA would give forage producers a new and effective weed control system. Successful introduction would also encourage biotechnology companies to continue developing other GE alfalfa traits adapted to the Canadian market.â&#x20AC;? But the Grain Growers of Canada, an association that represents 50,000 farmer members, issued a press release the same day of the protest, saying they support technologies that enable Canadians to farm sustainably. We support Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s robust science-based regulatory environment which ensures any new crops or traits are proven safe for human consumption, animal feed and our environment,â&#x20AC;? Stephen Vandervalk, president of the Grain Growers of Canada said in the release. See GRAIN, page 7

Paul Slomp, a cattle farmer, who sells grass-fed, organic beef to 250 customers in the Ottawa area, protests with his young son Felix outside the Canadian Food Inspection Agency offices in Nepean on April 9 to halt the release of genetically modified alfalfa.

Grain growers association criticizes protest “While we appreciate that many long-time opponents of progress have concerns, the reality is they have a lot of rhetoric, but no facts to back up their case.” But Sharrat said someone in the government needs to take responsibility. “Our government doesn’t even consider the

potential economic costs before it allows GM (genetically modified) crops like this onto the market,” she said. “Farmers are left to bear the costs of GM contamination, which in the case of alfalfa would be borne by many types of family farmer across Canada.” Paul Slomp, a resident of Manotick Station who sells grass-fed, organic, non-certi-

fied beef to more than 200 clients in the Ottawa area, said the introduction of the modified plant doesn’t make sense. “Farmers don’t want it and I know my consumers don’t want it,” he said. “We have to ask ourselves who is making the decisions around what kind of food we eat, why on earth is this being legitimized and being commercialized in Canada?”

No mass exodus in sight


hil McNeely has his heart in the right place. The Ottawa-Orléans MPP has been a vocal proponent for his riding’s constituents over the past year, doing what he feels is best to protect the area’s economic, social and cultural identity. But, the Orléans politician was left floating in the political deep end with no life preserver in sight when he sent a letter to the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages attempting to stop the move of Department of National Defence staff and military personnel to the Nortel Campus in the city’s west end. McNeely seems to think the relocation will result in a mass exodus of the Orléans francophone community. Granted, any DND employee who happens to own a house in Orléans won’t be happy with a longer commute time. But who would be? It’s a little unreasonable to ask the federal government or its agencies not to relocate its staff or set up shop in a new part of town because it will result in a longer car or bus ride for its employees. No one is forcing DND staff to move – they can choose to maintain homes in Orléans or move to a residence a little closer to the Nortel Campus. This is an economic reality that those of us who

work for private businesses face. Also, there is no way for McNeely to know how many of the affected employees currently live in Orléans, or where they would prefer to live. As for McNeely’s suggestion that the relocation threatens the francophone character of the Orléans community, that is another red herring that distracts residents from the real problem. The MPP, and his fellow east-end politicians, should focus their efforts on convincing businesses to locate in Orléans, instead of relying on strictly remaining a bedroom community for federal civil servants. After the economic downturn of 2008 and the subsequent budgetary struggles faced by the provincial and federal governments, many Ontarians are thankful simply to have jobs, never mind quibbling over having to increase commute times or change living arrangements to keep them. Pitting one end of the city against the other and attempting to beat the federal government over the head with the preserve-francophone-rights stick is counterproductive and does nothing to foster job growth in the Ottawa region. Orléans is a vibrant community with wonderful parks, recreation, transit – a great place to live, and play and do business.


Time to get ready for some geezer cinema


s it OK to use the word “geezer?” Perhaps it is if you are one. Somehow it seems more human than “senior” and way nicer than “elderly.” It also suggests a sense of humour which, heaven knows comes in handy. If it’s all right to continue, this column is going to be about geezer flicks – in other words, movies featuring old people. There is a small trend in this direction. Recently several movies featuring older actors have hit local screens, to the considerable appreciation of older audiences. There was Quartet, about a group of retired British musicians living in a musicians’ retirement home. People like Maggie Smith were in it, along with Tom Courtenay and Billy Connolly. Some of the jokes were about aging, but a lot of the humour came from the notion that retired people have the preoccupations they did when they were younger, the same fears and jealousies. Then there was The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with Maggie Smith again, along with Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson and other great British actors, living in a run-down hotel in India, each seeking something or seeking escape from something else. Both movies were funny, showing that you don’t stop laughing when you hit a certain age,

and both had happy endings of a sort, showing that happy endings aren’t only for the young and pretty. The ending was less happy in Away From Her, Sarah Polley’s 2006 film featuring Julie Christie as a victim of early Alzheimer’s and Gordon Pinsent as her not-entirely-noble husband. Although it sometimes seems that way, smart movies about older people are not the exclusive preserve of the British. What is encouraging about such movies is the indication their mere presence makes that geezers might actually constitute a significant market – in other words, that they cannot be ignored while the entertainment industry pursues teenagers. This shouldn’t be a surprise, when you Published weekly by:

think about it. That huge baby boom generation has been marching steadily onward into old age and the front end of it is well into retirement now. More is to come. That may be a mixed blessing – the Eagles on the muzak at the retirement home – but at least it may mean better movies. For one thing, we don’t have to watch people obsessed with losing their virginity. When the flood of geezer flicks arrives, moviegoers will have to be aware of the proper way of viewing them. This involves going to your local multiplex in mid-afternoon and mid-week when the parking lot is almost empty and there are no lineups for popcorn because everyone else in the world is either at work or in school. Having made the purchase, you enter the theatre early – because geezers are always early – and look around at the 14 other people who are in it. They are all your age. There is no need to greet your fellow moviegoers, but you will be silently grateful for them because you know that none of them will be playing with their phones during the show, the ability to manipulate phones not being a highly-prized skill among this generation. They will also have not the slightest idea of the answers to the movie trivia questions that flash

on the screen, none of which involve Gary Cooper or Debra Paget. After watching previews of movies featuring explosions and making a mental note not to see them, the geezers will enjoy the movie, nod politely to each other on the way out and get home before the rush-hour traffic. That’s the way it is now but there’s always the risk that the pleasant ritual could be put at risk by the increasing popularity of geezer flicks and the increasing population of geezers. Already there are reports of crowds of more than 14 at matinees of Quartet. But geezers have met worse challenges in their long lives.

e are a culture that loves celebrity. Yet we often treat celebrities as superhuman or subhuman â&#x20AC;&#x201C; never human. We admire, but we also criticize and scathe. Underlying this, my guess is, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small part in all of us that would like to emulate them. But I wanted to ďŹ nd out: what makes a celebrity tick? This month, I spoke with Kathy Smart, Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest celebrity export and the owner of Live the Smart Way. She called me from the GlutenFree Expo in Calgary. She laughs when I mention the word celebrity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always knew from an early age that I would help millions of people,â&#x20AC;? she admits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what that would look like.â&#x20AC;? Smart was born and raised in Cornwall. As a kid, Smart became very sick. She lost weight and frequently had to miss school. She was depressed. At 12, a naturopath diagnosed her with a number of food allergies, including dairy and gluten. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Within a week, I went from being very sick to a child that was full of energy and life

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse and a kid that was anxious to one who could go to school and have friends,â&#x20AC;? said Smart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when I realized, if you change what you eat, you can change your life.â&#x20AC;? That line became Smartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mantra. At 19, she worked for local outlets of a national grocery chain, identifying gluten-free products on mainstream shelves. When I ďŹ rst encountered Smart, she was running a number of exercise and nutrition programs in OrlĂŠans. Smartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prospects changed a few years ago when she realized she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have children of her own. She wanted to create something, so she wrote a best-selling gluten-free cookbook. Its timely release coincided with the launch of a local TV program and overnight she went from being Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nutrition expert to a national celebrity.

Despite this, I get the sense talking to Smart that she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed a bit since her days at the community centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about money,â&#x20AC;? she said. What about fear? Does she have any? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t


Web Poll

really understand the question.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so passionate about her mission that fear is the last thing on her mind. With a bit of probing, she gives me the answer to the main question of my interview: â&#x20AC;&#x153;how can someone like me or you, the reader, or anyone become a celebrity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or at least achieve â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;successâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in life?â&#x20AC;? Focusing on her main goal allows Smart to remain authentic in her mission. If Smartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anything to go by, celebrities are like the rest of us, but maybe with a thicker skin and a somewhat superhuman ability to look at the bright side of life.

Breeders, pet owners pleased with final kennel bylaw Laura Mueller

EMC news - The third time was the charm for Ottawa’s new kennel rules, which are aimed at preventing puppy mills. The proposed bylaw was delayed twice late last year after public outcry that centered on how the new rules would impact people who own dogs for recreational purposes such as dogsledding. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry originally asked for it to be delayed in October, when almost 200 people packed the Greely Community Centre and more than 20 people spoke to tell councillors about all the problems with the policy as it was proposed. For one thing, the city would be asking many rural dog owners to fly under the radar if it passes new kennel and breeding rules, Kinburn resident Tim Pychyl told councillors during that meeting on Oct. 4. Pychyl, who owns eight sled dogs,

pleaded with the committee to include people like him – recreational pet owners who have more than three dogs. Based on that feedback, staff included a new recreational kennel category in the new proposal, which would cover homes where dogs are raised for non-commercial recreational purposes. The category has a limit of 10 dogs over the age of 20 weeks (this category only applies to dogs), unless they are housed in a building separate from the home. License holders can also keep up to three dogs that have retired from their recreational use and one rescued dog. Pychyl said the addition “has really done the job of creating the space we need to ethically own and race dogs.” Joan Colbourn, past president of the Ottawa Kennel Club, said the addition of the recreation category was a “wonderful way” to solve the problems dog owners identified in the previous versions of the bylaw. Still, many dog owners and breeders will continue to fly under the radar even though they should be licensed,

said the kennel club’s current president, Carol Broadhurst. “It would be wonderful if everyone applied … but not everyone will apply. That’s the problem,” she said, adding there is a lot of leeway there for the “good” breeders to comply. The second category would put a limit of three dogs and five cats in place for the in-home breeding kennel category. But after the public called for it, staff added a clause to allow up to three retired dogs or five retired cats to be kept as pets, or a rescued dog or cat to be kept temporarily. Those limits are intended to reduce the potential for noise caused by a large number of cats or dogs in a residential setting, but the limits wouldn’t apply to in-home breeding kennels that house animals primarily in an outbuilding. The in-home breeding category include basic requirements such as clean conditions and veterinary care when necessary, but it also includes limits on breeding, selling and transferring animals. City staff also removed a clause

of the in-home breeding kennel that would have required breeders to be a member in good standing of a bona fide dog or cat registry such as the Canadian Kennel Club. That’s in recognition of breeders who focus on mixed “designer” breeds rather than purebreeds. “We’re not in the business of passing judgment on whether animals should be true bred or not,” said Christine Hartig, the city project officer for the new rules. Ron Holowka, a resident who came to address the committee on April 4, asked councillors to consider making the rules apply to pet shops as well. But Hartig said pet shops fall under different legislation because they handle animals in a different way. Shops usually don’t breed animals themselves, and they house the animals temporarily until they are sold – not for long periods of time, like a breeding kennel. A city staff review found that most pet shops in Ottawa are actually selling animals from shelters and the

Ottawa Human Society – not private breeders, Hartig said. The third category would apply to boarding kennels, which would require a $100 license. Boarding operations would be required to comply with zoning, have the proper insurance, keep health records for each animal, employ trained staff and to maintain cleanliness and proper conditions such as temperature, food and water. Some existing license holders will be grandfathered and allowed to have more animals until 2018. Under the previous rules staff drafted in October, there were only two categories: in-home breeding license, which would apply to people who have more than three dogs or five cats for breeding or showing and a separate licence proposed for commercial kennels or boarding operations. Enforcement of the kennel bylaw would be based on health and safety and only done when absolutely necessary, city staff said. Those fines can be appealed.

EMC news – A learning partnership has created a class of junior entrepreneurs at Knoxdale Public School. Ben Shepherd’s Grade 5 and 6 students have been working on a project to keep their peers moving. Their business model – called Full Speed Ahead – attempts to market wristbands and water bottles with the slogan “Don’t sit, get fit.” “It really works,” Shepherd said. “Over the weekend every time I would sit down to read I would see the wristband and get motivated to get up and do something.” The project is part of an initiative started by a national charity called The Learning Partnership – an organization that promotes public education. The project is designed to get the students out in the community and learning to apply their learned skills to the real world. Samantha Lin, a student working on the project, said her class got sponsorship money from a Canadian Tire store to purchase the bottles and wrist bands. Any money left over will go to Jumpstart, a charity aimed at making recreational activities available to kids regardless of their parent’s income.

of the project. Their target demographic was youth aged 10 to 17. “One of the things we found most important is that each group have a leader,” Amanda McCarthy said. “There had to be someone for people to follow to push the project forward. We couldn’t just have followers or nothing would have gotten done.” Alim Dhanani said the class ordered the bottles and the wristbands from different websites. They have been selling them at the school or in their neighbourhoods since March Break. Wristbands are $2 and the bottles are $6. “We found some colours sell better than others,” Dhanani said. “Green and blue sold really well, but red and yellow aren’t as popular.” Now that sales have begun, the class has decided on a launch party to sell more of their stock and to promote fitness in the school. Lindsay Jeffereson, a Manotick resident, who comes to the school for the gifted French immersion program, said she would be helping to lead some of her peers in dance on April 24. The launch is set to take place on April 24 and 25. Students in Shepherd’s class are working on gradeappropriate dances so they can teach their peers about fitness and showcase their products at the same time.

ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION LAUNCHES WOUNDED WARRIORS PROJECT I was pleased to recently attend the launch of the Wound Warriors Canada National Partnership at the Barrhaven Legion. The national awareness campaign focuses on the support services available at the Royal Canadian Legion Branches across Canada. The goal of the partnership is to reach out to Veterans to ensure they have access to the benefits and services that they are entitled to. As you know, I have been advocating to make services for veterans a priority. City Council recently approved my motion calling for city staff to work with the Royal Canadian Legion and Veterans Affairs Canada to enhance information sharing, referrals, and connection to social and employment services in the Ottawa area that are available and often underutilized by veterans. CITY INCREASING FINES FOR UNAUTHORIZED ROAD DISRUPTIONS I was happy to recently learn that the province has granted the City of Ottawa approval to increase Road Activity Bylaw fines. This will ensure contractors are not illegally blocking roadways or disrupting the flow of traffic during peak commute times in the mornings and afternoons without the approval of the municipality. I have heard from residents from across the City of Ottawa who are frustrated by the lack of courtesy shown by some contractors who continually disrupt the peak period commute for residents by illegally blocking roadways. I understand that your time is important and I have been advocating to City Officials to raise the fines for unauthorized road closures or disruptions to help ensure that traffic is flowing during peak commute times. UPCOMING TRAFFIC NOTIFICATION FOR JOCKVALE ROAD I wanted to remind residents that City officials have advised that they will require a full road closure on Jockvale Road, just south of the Jock River, starting on Friday, April 19th at 7:00pm until Monday, April 22nd at 6:00am. This work is critical to the Jockvale Road Widening and Bridge Construction project schedule as the City requires this watermain relocation work to be completed before May 15, 2013. The watermain relocation is required to permit the continued construction of the east bridge crossing on Jockvale Road. Please watch for signage indicating the re-routing that will be required in order for this work to take place. I appreciate the patience of affected residents during these weekends while this important work is completed. OC TRANSPO SPRING SERVICE CHANGES Please note that new spring transit schedules and service improvements will start Sunday, April 21st. The new spring schedule is currently reflected online through the OC Transpo travel planner and I encourage residents to use this tool to see how the spring service change may affect your travel. Be assured, however, that your current route will continue to serve your stop at its usual time until April 21st. For more information, service schedules, maps, and travel planning please visit: BARRHAVEN SPRING OPEN HOUSE I would like to thank everyone who made it out to the annual Spring Open House that I co-hosted with my colleague, Councillor Jan Harder. As Barrhaven Councillors, we are proud to present the community with an opportunity each spring and fall to meet and speak with city officials regarding projects of interest to Barrhaven. It was another great event and I would like to thank Jan and her team for all they do to help put this event together. It was a good night, meeting many old and new residents of the Ward. THANKS FOR A GREAT HOCKEY SEASON!

EMC news - Police, social service workers, residents and politicians learned about the power of the community during a crime prevention workshop at Immaculata High School on April 6. Jim Diers, a U.S.-based consultant on participatory democracy was the workshop’s keynote speaker. The event was hosted by Crime Prevention Ottawa, an organization that works to engage residents and property owners in crime prevention strategies. He said the feeling of community is losing out to things like television and travel to and from work. “People say they don’t have time to get involved, but they spend three or four hours a day in front of a screen,” Diers said. To combat television and disinterest Diers said the trick is to make getting involved in your community fun. “A lot of people don’t sign up for projects because they think they will have to go to a lot of meetings,” he said. “You sign up for a project and you’re sentenced to a lifetime of meetings. No wonder television is winning.” Diers said the traditional role of hosting a meeting to talk about issues like crime tends to attract the same kind of people – meaning those attending neighbourhood association meetings don’t represent the make up of the neighbourhood. “Organizers should look at who isn’t attending a meeting, they could have interesting solutions,” he said. “My friend who is a duck hunter used to say, ‘we only use loon calls then we wonder why a bunch of loons show up.’” Ottawa police Chief Charles Bordeleau said initiatives like the Vanier Business Improvement Area (BIA) annual awards are great because they celebrate the work businesses do in the community. “I go to a lot of events and it’s great to see barbecues in Carlingwood celebrating Neighbourhood Watch volunteers and other neighbourhoods congratulating those who get involvement,” he said. Residents from across the city attended the workshop at Immaculata, hoping to connect with other residents and service organizations that operate at the grassroots level. One 16-year-old resident of Bayshore asked how to motivate the members of her community.


Police Chief Charles Bordeleau talks about the importance of community-based initiatives like neighbourhood watch programs to crime prevention. Bordeleau was one of the panel of speakers for the Community Solutions: Beautification Today, Safer Tomorrow workshop hosted by Crime Prevention Ottawa on April 6. “Throw a party, ask people what they would like to see in their neighbourhood, find out what their passions are,” Diers said. He said residents need to be connected by their passions. He added that too often we focus on the deficit of our community, and forget about the positives. “Social service organizations tend to go into a community and do a needs assessment, and that has a place, but we also need to remember the local connections that we have to offer,” Diers said. One example Diers used was of Lake Street in Minneapolis. The street’s stores were vacant and there was a lot of criminal activity at night. A group of residents came together and formed a co-operative of businesses. One resident, who became president of the co-op, ended up opening a chain of tamale restaurants. The co-operative ended up purchasing a building on Lake Street and running a number of Mexican-themed shops. Later, a group of Somalian residents followed suit and now there is

an international commercial centre on the street that brings tourists from all over. In Diers’ own neighbourhood of Columbia City of Seattle, there was a similar project. Vacant businesses were creating spaces for drug dealing and prostitution. Diers said the decline started with the introduction of big-box stores that started to close down the smaller businesses. “We had to do something, and there was an incredible network of faith-based groups and residents willing to pitch in,” he said. The first step was to get the restaurants to stay open at night. A lot of the restaurants only served lunch because the criminal activity at night was a deterrent for potential clientele. Residents organized a beat night, where each restaurant had a different kind of music, getting people out on the street. “It was so popular that it now happens every week,” Diers said. And added traffic on the streets means more customers and customers attract new busi-

ness. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, who attended the Crime Prevention Ottawa workshop, said one of the ideas – painting the front of vacant businesses to mimic ice cream shops or hair salons as a business driver – is something he plans to talk about at the next meeting of the Bells Corners BIA. Mayor Jim Watson said it wasn’t that long ago that Crime Prevention Ottawa was on the chopping block. “During a budget process it was nearly eliminated, but people came out and talked about the benefits. Now its budget has been increased,” he said, adding the work of the Vanier Beautification Committee has worked well as a crime deterrent. Shad Qadri, who serves as the organization’s chair, said communication and sharing of available resources are some of the organization’s strength. Whatever the project, pride in the community will help to provide a safeguard, Diers said. “We need to take ownership of the space and create bumping places for people to get together and connect,” he said.

Foyer women foster Conversations at Foyer Gallery

Four members of the Foyer Gallery are fostering conversations in with colour, light texture and form. The quartet of women, Elisabeth Arbuckle, Jennifer Foster, Katrin Smith and Margaret Chwialkowaska will be showcasing their work in an exhibit called Conversations. The show is set to start with an opening reception at 2 p.m. on April 24.

Chwialkowska said it’s probably the first time there has been an exhibit with all women artists. “It was just something we wanted to do,” she said. “We figured we could make our work complement each other.” Foster said she is in love with form. She her main medium is oil on canvas. She has studied at the Ottawa School of Art and Algonquin College. Smith said she likes to work with all kinds of mediums.

“I love texture,” she said. She often will use multiple layers of paint, found objects or collage to create a textural landscape. Arbuckle, who works in acrylic, said she is fascinated by patterns and lines. Chwailkowska, who uses oil, but always paints with a palette knife, is fascinated by the magic hour when the sun sets at dusk. “I love colour,” she said. The show will run until May 12.

“We figured we could make our work complement each other.” MARGARET CHWIALKOWSKA

The gallery is in the situated inside the Woodroffe Avenue-facing entrance one of the Nepean Sportsplex. “I like showing here because you get people who maybe wouldn’t

normally go to a gallery,” Arbuckle said. “You get to have conversations with people about why they like your work. You wouldn’t get that if you sold your work at a traditional gallery.” Foster, who has been a member of the gallery for two years, said she enjoys having a chance to see what other Ottawa-area artists are doing.

City plans to write off $1 million in unpaid levies Laura Mueller

EMC news - The city plans to write off $1 million of the $10 million it is owed from property owners who had agreed to pay tax levies for local infrastructure improvements. Most of the outstanding charges â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 70 per cent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are related to local projects like the Manotick sanitary sewer extensions and an extension to Legget Drive that were constructed over the last four years. The city can allow property owners to pay for a portion of work that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be warranted under city policies, such as extending a water main farther down a street than planned. Some of that money likely canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be recovered because of a loophole: if the property changed hands and the local improvement fee wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t registered on the propertiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; title, the city is pretty much out of luck. The city could take those new owners to court, said Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark, who sits on the ďŹ nance and economic development committee, but lawyers advised that the city likely wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be successful. With that in mind, the ďŹ nance committee agreed that outstanding local improvement charges should be dismissed if the owner bought the property after the infrastructure construction and if the tax certiďŹ cate did not list the pending charges. Those property owners will also have to sign an afďŹ davit saying they were not aware of the pending charges. That would apply to 73 property owners who

So much more than recliners, I could hardly believe it.

should pay the city a total of $1.1 million. Council was set to vote for ďŹ nal approval on the matter on April 10. The city has taken steps to ensure this doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen again. Property tax certiďŹ cates will be required to have a note listing the local improvement charge. A committee of revision hearing, which is required in case property owners want to appeal the amount they were charged for their portion of the work, must happen within a year of the end of the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warranty period. Those measures have been in place since 2010. Some rreasons why the fees havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been collected are administrative and relate to legislative delays and research necessary for launching the committee of revision, while other delays are caused by the length of the construction projects and the staff time required. The committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval was also needed to allow the city to accept a payment for a water main project on Navan Road that was completed before council passed a bylaw enabling it to impose local improvement charges. The total $17,708 in fees for that project have been paid in full.

Gathering a learning opportunity for youth, elders Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Aboriginal youth and elders came together to share their knowledge and to learn about each other on Saturday, April 6. The all day gathering was a chance for youth to gather insights about their heritage and traditions, while also imparting their own wisdom to the elders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so excited to learn what they are up to,â&#x20AC;? said MĂŠtis Nation of Ontario Senator Reta Gordon, who grew up in Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The youth to the JESSICA CUNHA/METROLAND elders are like our grandchilFrom left, Sage Picody, Greg Meekis and Brad Picody perform during a ceremonial drum dren.â&#x20AC;? She said one thing sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s circle during a gathering of aboriginal elders and youth at the Richelieu Vanier Community Centre on April 6. The all day gathering was a chance for youth to learn about their learned from young aboriginals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which include First Naheritage and traditions, while also imparting their own wisdom to the elders. tion, MĂŠtis and Inuit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is â&#x20AC;&#x153;how lucky they are. They are so much luckier than their elders because they knew from day one who they were.â&#x20AC;? Growing up, Gordon said her generation and those beIN TODAYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S PAPER fore her had to hide their nationality as a means of survival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our generation and our parents generation, they hid who they were because of the times,â&#x20AC;? she said. *Selected Areas Only But now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something to



be embraced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Years ago it was a shame to be aboriginal,â&#x20AC;? said Gordon, who lives in Centretown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pride in who you are.â&#x20AC;? Her biggest piece of wisdom for todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth is to track their ancestry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Gordon can trace hers back to the 1700s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get on the computer and get the documentation because it is there,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then you know where you belong ... Knowing and having documentation are two different things.â&#x20AC;? UNITY

Eighteen-year-old Sage Picody was part of the ceremonial drum circle at the gathering. He has been training for 10 years on the drums and grew up on the northern Ontario reserve Mattagami First Nations. He said he plays the drums to create unity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It brings people together,â&#x20AC;? said Picody, who lives in Vanier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also) medicine; it makes people feel good inside. It brings happiness.â&#x20AC;? Having a chance to listen to his elders gives him â&#x20AC;&#x153;more of an understanding,â&#x20AC;? he said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get to hear how they lived in the past ... what the differences are.â&#x20AC;? Around 45 people attended the day-long gathering at the Richelieu Vanier Community Centre, put together by Wendy Lanouette and Wendy Dehler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The youth want to learn from the elders,â&#x20AC;? said Lanouette, who grew up in Chippewas of Nawash near Georgian Bay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They learn the traditional teachings ... the reasons we have certain traditions we follow.â&#x20AC;?

Knowing and having documentation are two different things. RETA GORDON

Many youth grow up in cities without a connection to their heritage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of them have never experienced that,â&#x20AC;? said Lanouette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re aboriginal but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what that means.â&#x20AC;? The day included medicine wheel teachings, live entertainment and presentations and reďŹ&#x201A;ections. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a way of reconnecting,â&#x20AC;? said Lanouette.

Wheelchair game about joy and fun: player Jessica Cunha

EMC sports - It was a white-knuckle finish during the Ottawa Power Wheelchair Hockey League’s annual fundraising game against a team comprised of local celebrities on April 6. With only 46 seconds left to go in the final period, Moses Olong with the OPWHL Sharks tied the game with the Celebrities 5-5, while earning himself a hat trick. But the Celebrities took the game in a double shootout, winning 6-5, thanks to Coun. David Chernushenko. “We’re looking to have a lot of fun and give the crowd a good game,” said OPWHL coach Andrew Paterson, a resident of Nepean. “I think they all played really well. It was a good challenge.” OPWHL players are split into two sectors: the competitive tournament team, the Ottawa Capitals, and two recreational teams, the Gators and Sharks. All three teams played one period during the celebrity game. Nine-year-old Isabella Sicoli has only been playing for four months but the Bells Corners resident said she’s hooked on the sport.

“I like the fun,” she said. “I like that it’s all about fun; it’s not about winning, it’s about all the joy and fun you can have in hockey.” Sicoli plays forward for the Gators, after being traded from the Sharks last week. “First I was nervous because I wasn’t that good at being a forward,” said Sicoli. “But then I started to believe and now I’m like a pro.” It was 19-year-old Chris Pavone’s third game. The Algonquin College marketing student, who lives in Barrhaven, said he’d played baseball before but never hockey. After learning about the OPWHL from friends, he gave it a shot. “It’s just something fun, it’s something new,” said Pavone, who plays for the Sharks. Dino Giannetti, a resident of Katimavik, and Hollis Peirce, from the downtown Bank Street area, helped create the Ottawa league, which has grown to 25 players in four years. Peirce got the idea to create the OPWHL after moving from Calgary, where he played hockey in a wheelchair league since he was 11 years old.

All ages welcome to try OPWHL Continued from page 19

“We finally got enough momentum going,” said the now 25-year-old Peirce about getting the league on the court. “It allows any type of ability to play against each other. It really evens the playing field.” Peirce plays defence for the Ottawa Capitals and the Sharks. The league is open to people of all ages and abilities, with players as young as eight and older than 60. “That’s the great thing about wheelchair hockey; it doesn’t matter your age. Anyone can play,” said Peirce, adding it’s a social event as much as a hockey game. “It’s great, the success we’ve had,” added Giannetti, 25, who plays goalie and defence for the Sharks and Ottawa Capitals. WORKOUT

Aside from Olong, Roddey Hard scored two goals for the OPWHL. Celebrities Tyson Hinz and Justin Shaver, both Carleton Ravens basketball players, morning show host Jeff Hopper, Ottawa 67’s goalie

Jacob Blair and Todd Nicholson, a three-time medal winning Canadian Paralympic Sledge hockey player, scored for their team. The celebrities took to the court in manual wheelchairs, so controlling the ball and the chair at the same time was difficult, said Shaver, who is studying psychology and social work at Carleton. Many of the celebrity players used their feet to propel the wheelchairs so they could maneuver the chair and hockey stick at the same time. “It’s a workout,” said Hinz, a commerce student at the university. “Hopefully we’ll be asked back (next year).” The game was held in the Norm Fenn Gym on the Carleton University campus – where the OPWHL hosts training every Sunday – as a fundraiser for the upcoming Canadian Power Hockey Championships this August in London, Ont. It costs around $11,000 for the travelling team to participate, said Peirce. The OPWHL was established by Carleton University students in 2009 for players who use wheelchairs and have limited upper body strength or mobility. With files from Eddie Rwema

always lived life without one of the major senses, accommodating this limitation by making the most of his other senses.

So the curious author began to research the subject. Of the years of research he con-

EMC entertainment - If you were offered a face transplant, would you take it? If you were so disfigured, that you could not go outside, or eat, or smell or speak properly, would you opt for a new face, to experience a normal life again? These are the questions Gerald Neufeld explores in his first book, Transplant, a novel about face transplants. “What would you do if you lost your face and were offered a new one, would you take it?” Neufeld asked. “I can’t imagine why not, and that is why I wrote this book.” The novel introduces readers to a young Ottawa woman who one day loses an entire portion of her face in a vehicle accident. Forced to live in the shadows, unable to breath, eat, smell or speak the way she once had, this young character watches as the life she once knew drifts away until one day she is offered a second chance in the form of a new face. The novel looks at the emotions of living without a face, and dealing with a new identity. “My objective was to raise the question about whether or not it would be a good thing to get a face transplant,” Neufeld said. His book is based on five years of research on face transplants, including interviews with surgeons and two recipients. Although the novel is a work of fiction, Neufeld said it was important to have a strong setting of

He said it was important to share all the aspects of the topic to his readers. “Everyone sensualizes the procedure, I looked at what happens after.” For a sneak peak at the novel or to purchase a copy, readers are invited to Neufeld’s website at

April 27 is Daffodil Day: wear a daffodil pin EMC news - Every three minutes another Canadian hears the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have cancer,â&#x20AC;? and the Canadian Cancer Society wants them to know that they are not alone. During Daffodil Month, and especially on Daffodil Day on April 27, the society is asking Canadians to wear a daffodil pin as a bright symbol of support for people living with cancer and to join the fight against cancer by making a donation. The launch of the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daffodil campaign is especially meaningful as it marks the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 75th anniversary. On March 28, 1938, the Canadian Cancer Society was officially born, growing through the years into Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading national cancer-fighting charity. Today â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thanks to the years of support of volunteers and donors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the society has the reach, strength and experience to make the most impact against cancer in communities across Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We invite Canadians to join us in marking our 75th anniversary by making a donation during Daffodil Month,â&#x20AC;? says Pamela Fralick, president and CEO of the Canadian Cancer Society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your donation will help us continue our work in preventing cancer, funding research and providing support for Canadians living with cancer.â&#x20AC;? During the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early years in the 1940s, the cancer survival rate was about 25 per cent. Today, over 60 per cent of Canadians diagnosed

with cancer will survive at least five years after their diagnosis. DAFFODIL DAY

The bright yellow daffodil has been an integral part of the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history since it was used for the first time by Toronto volunteers during the 1950s to decorate tables at fundraising events that became known as Daffodil Teas. Daffodil Day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Saturday, April 27 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; helps wrap up the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign by designating a special day where we can reflect upon the thousands of Canadians who are on a cancer journey and also to remember those who have not survived. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By wearing a daffodil pin on April 27, we show people living with cancer that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to face cancer alone,â&#x20AC;? says Fralick. The Society also encourages Canadians to do something special on Daffodil Day for a person living with cancer or to help contribute in some way to the fight against the disease. On Daffodil Day: * Make a meal for someone you know who has cancer or drive them to an appointment. * Tell a loved one or a friend with cancer that you are thinking of them; send them an email or card; tell them about the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s information and support programs. * Sign up as a volunteer with the society and see how you can contribute to the cancer fight.

* Join a Relay For Life event or sponsor someone who is participating. To donate online or to find out where you can get a daffodil pin, go to or contact your local

society office. In 2012, it was estimated that 186,400 new cases of cancer (excluding 81,300 cases of non-melanoma skin cancer) would be diagnosed and about 75,700 Canadians would die

from the disease. When you want to know more about cancer, visit or call our toll-free bilingual Cancer Information Service at 1-888-9393333.

Dig Safe Month is a timely reminder to call before you dig

Best Bungalow! Best Single! Best Kitchen! Best Builder!


EMC news - Spring may be a good time to start work around your home, but be sure to call before you dig. The Ontario Regional Common Ground Alliance have designated April as Dig Safe Month in Ontario. This month is dedicated to improving safety and reducing damages to underground facilities by raising awareness of safe digging practices. “Dig Safe Month is designed to naturally coincide with the unofficial start of spring digging season. It will serve as a reminder to homeowners and contractors that they need to call before they start digging,” said ORCGA president Jim Douglas. The alliance and its members, including Ontario One Call, are encouraging homeowners and contractors to call for locates before they dig to prevent injuries, property damage and inconvenient outages. Ensuring the safety of those who work or live in the vicinity of underground facilities and protecting vital services is everyone’s responsibility. Visit for more information on Dig Safe Month, safety guidelines and how to get involved.

Students shine at regional science fair Jessica Cunha

EMC news - More than 325 students from all over the city took part in the Ottawa Regional Science Fair on Saturday, April 6, at Carleton University. With more than 200 projects representing more than 40 schools, the judges had their work cut out for them. “The quality is pretty impressive,” said committee co-chair Jovan Groen. “We’ve got a great fair this year.” Students in grades 7 to 12 competed in the fields of science and engineering in junior, intermediate, senior, and special awards categories. The 2013 edition marked the 52nd year of the science fair. “They’re excited to share here,” said Groen. Grade 7 students Emma Jones, 13, and Tanya Nguyen, 12, from Ashbury College in east Ottawa did a project on the cleanliness of their school by examining various surfaces. “We wanted to see if our school was a safe environment,” said Emma. “We found that we didn’t have a lot of dangerous bacteria but we did have mould on our desks,” added Tanya. The solution was to wipe down the desks more often. Grade 11 students Alexa Rious, 17, and Makayla Roper, 16, from All Saints Catholic High School in Kanata, wanted to develop a water filter that could be made from resources found in Third World countries. The result was a multiple-layer filter comprised of cloth, gravel, sand, charcoal, cat grass and corn husks. “They can easily make good filter and purification systems,” said Alexa, adding the judges were im-

pressed the entry. Manotick’s Nasib Al Karmi, a Grade 7 student at Abraar School in Bayshore, made a vehicle that cleans snow off solar panels. He noticed that his neighbour had to clear the snow off his solar panels with a rake during the winter months. “I found out through my research just an inch of snow can shut down the whole system,” said Nasib. He found glass that could protect the panels so the vehicle wouldn’t damage them. “The glass does not affect the efficiency,” he said, adding the weight of the vehicle would determine what kind of glass would be used. Amar Abdisamed, a Grade 8 student at Ottawa Islamic School in west Ottawa, created a project on how to cure cancer with nanotechnology. The Sandy Hill resident lost his grandfather to brain cancer and his uncle to lung cancer. “I wanted to use my education (to) find a cure,” said Amar. “(Nanotechnology) can help any stage of cancer because it completely destroys the tumour” without affecting the healthy cells surrounding the diseased area.

Fundraiser aims to house the homeless Walkathon to help raise awareness for housing initiative Michelle Nash

EMC news - When it comes to building community and creating a place to call home, one charitable organization prides itself in bringing faith, family and friends together to make it happen. The Multifaith Housing Initiative is an affordable housing charity that connects volunteers from different faith communities from across the city with families or individuals who are at risk or experiencing homelessness in order to help them find a rental home. The initiative allows multiple faith communities, volunteers and donors to reduce the number of people living on the streets or in shelters. The initiative owns 40 units in three buildings in Vanier and Centretown and in order to maintain and expand those operations, the organization is holding its annual Tulipathon fundraising event on May 5 from 3 to 5 p.m. Micah Garten is the organization’s fundraising manager and he is currently working to put the final touches on the day’s events. “It’s a nice event, and probably the one and only event

where you will see a rabbi, an imam, a minister and a Hindu all together for the same cause,” Garten said. The organization has 90 tenants in the 40 units and the campaign goal is to add another 20 units. The housing is not exclusive to one faith or one demographic. Although there are a lot of families who have found placement in one of the initiative’s buildings, the group works with seniors, students, low-income and seasonal workers to find them housing. All the existing units are full, Garten said, so expanding the number of units is the only way to successfully help more people in need. Celebrating its 15th year, the walkathon event raised $27,000 last year. This year, Garten said the group is looking to beat that number. The group has launched a campaign called A Place to Call Home, in which the organization aims to raise $500,000. This money would go towards purchasing a building in the city. “The units we provide have created communities,” he said. “Mothers are looking after each others’ children; homework clubs and community gardens have been started. We strive to create and build a sense of community and that is why it’s important to raise more money and purchase more units: to build more strong communities.” The walk is a short one, Garten said, to bring awareness to the organization and the homelessness cause. Those who participate will walk a 3.3

kilometre route from Dow’s Lake to Bank Street. After the walk, they return to Commissioners Park to celebrate with food, friends and families. Over the course of a year, Garten said the organization’s volunteers can log more than 5,000 hours helping tenants, performing duties such as housing management, event planning, fundraising, finance management and human resources. The organization provides below-market rent to its tenants. That number is varied, depending on ability, but the goal is to have tenants take pride in their homes. Garten said it would be simple math, with more rental units, the more overhead the organization can cover on its own. “We run this organization on the bare bones, everyone helps, even me to move fridges in or help with tenant concerns,” Garten said. “That is why this fundraiser, and fundraising is so important. If we can grow, we can be selfsustaining.” Registration for the fundraiser begins at Dow’s Lake in Commissioners Park at 2:30 p.m. Visit multifaithhousing. ca for more information about the organization and the Tulipathon.

Ottawa has more than enough room for jobs: study

EMC news - Ottawa needs to find ways to convince businesses it’s a good idea to locate near transit hubs, councillors heard on April 9. Fifty per cent of businesses polled by a city-hired consultant said they likely wouldn’t relocate their business closer to a transit line because of perceived or real disadvantages such as difficulty accessing roads and free or low-cost parking and the high cost of buying or renting space. There was also some concern about inconsistent transit service and distance from potential customers. “Right now it looks like it’s going to be a hard sell,” said Daniel Nixey, a consultant from Danix Management Ltd., who undertook a detailed study of employment lands in Ottawa as part of the Official Plan update that’s currently underway. The transportation committee chairman, Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli, said it’s a problem that employers have a perception that transit service isn’t good enough to warrant a move. Retailers are more likely to want to move to transit-accessible locations and the federal government is also expected to continue focusing its offices at transit hubs, Nixey said. The topic came up as part of a dis-

cussion about whether the city has enough lands slated for the development of offices, factories and retail centres as job hubs. The city’s planning committee agreed with staff’s conclusion that there are enough employment lands to last the city for another 40 years and dismissed a request from builders to expand the areas zoned for employment development. The committee asked for a detailed presentation on April 9 after getting a grilling from consultants representing Walton Group, which owns a large holding of undeveloped land in southwest Ottawa. One of Walton’s consultants, Leah Carson of MMM Group, said her company’s review showed there is not enough employment land close the highways and there are not enough large parcels of land in the short-term supply that could be built up. The city doesn’t evaluate available employment lands the same way the private consultants did, Cross said. That’s because the city doesn’t have any indication that employers see proximity to highways as a factor that makes the spot any more desirable than other areas. And large parcels of land aren’t in demand, either, he added. The idea of giving developers flexibility to mix employment areas with

some housing isn’t working, Nixey said. That category is called “enterprise” lands, and instead of resulting in a mix of residences and jobs, most of those lands are being built up with housing because it’s more profitable than offices and shops, he said. “Work-live areas are a great idea,” he said. “The problem is, it didn’t happen … In Kanata, we ended up

with a bunch of townhouses.” The enterprise category should either be scrapped entirely – something that has been discussed at city hall in the past – or new criteria should be added to ensure the jobs come to the area before homes are built. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said the land north of the Bellwoods Estates trailer park could become a

model for switching land from the “enterprise” category to employment land. A developer, Brigil Platinum, wants to do something similar in Orléans. The company’s planning consultant, Miguel Tremblay of FoTenn, said Brigil wants to expand a Cité Collegial building on North Service Road and build up around it on a 25acre site it owns. Changing the land designation from employment lands to a mixed-use centre would allow the company to build for up to 1,100 employees, whereas the city’s designation plans for around 700 jobs. Orléans Coun. Bob Monette was thrilled with the idea because it has the potential to bring even more jobs to his ward than the city anticipated. Orléans has a smaller proportion of available employment land than the rest of the city – about seven per cent of the supply, which will last about 20 years, said city staffer Ian Cross.

case-by-case basis, he said. But a guideline to follow would be to ensure there is enough space to provide a minimum of 0.75 jobs per household in large villages that are home to 2,000 or more people.


There is enough employment land ready to develop in the rural areas to last 100 years, the study found. That’s far more than is needed, so the city should look at switching some of those lands so they can be developed for other uses, Nixey said. That will have to be done on a

NEWS EMC news - The majority of Canadians are sending a clear message that a public registry of buildings containing asbestos, including private homes, is important and 78 per cent say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the responsibility of the federal government to create one, according to poll results released by the Canadian Cancer Society.

The Canadian Cancer Society and the Canadian Medical Association have joined forces in urging the federal government to establish one central public registry of all buildings in Canada that contain asbestos. The registry should be free, easily accessible and include privately owned buildings, buildings on aboriginal

From the 1920s to 1990s, asbestos was used as insulation and sound prooďŹ ng in buildings throughout Canada. It is estimated that 240,000 homes across the country were insulated with materials

that might contain asbestos, but the public canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ nd out which buildings contain the asbestos and the list may not be complete. Extended and frequent exposure to asbestos is associated with lung cancer and mesothelioma, a rare cancer of the lining of the chest or abdominal cavity.

Rock show to benefit local dog rescues Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Greenfield’s Pub will play host to a howling good time on April 20. The pub is set to host Rock n’ Rescue, a musical fundraiser that will raise money to help four local dog rescue organizations. The four organizations Genesis Dog Rescue, Hopeful Hearts, Birch Haven Rescue and Rehabilitation and Poets Vision Aussie Rescue – fill the void left by humane societies. “We take the dogs that probably won’t be adopted,” said Roz Phelps, founder of Hopeful Hearts dog rescue. On a recent night, Phelps picked up

four dogs from a Gatineau SPCA and was frantically looking for foster homes. “A lot of these dogs wouldn’t be adopted because being in a shelter just shatters them,” Phelps said, adding the way a dog acts in a shelter isn’t really a true measure of their temperament. The Rock n’ Rescue idea for a musical fundraiser came from Andrea Valois of Genesis. She has volunteered with the organization for about a year. A former recording artist, Valois got the idea from some contacts in Los Angeles who do an annual benefit concert and have a charitable foundation under that name. The show is set to start at Greenfields at 900 Greenbank Road at 7:30 p.m. The Riot Police, a Nepean-based band will hit the stage, followed by Water’s Edge,

Little Dog and Sal Piamonte. Valois said her vet is a member of Water’s Edge. “All of the performers are big dog lovers,” she said. There will also be T-shirts, bandanas and dog tags at the event. Valois and Phelps said they hope it will be an annual feature and eventually become a charitable foundation called Rock n’ Rescue Canada. Rescuing is expensive business. For every dog they rescue; the tab is roughly $800. The adoption fee is $500. “We are always operating at a deficit,” Valois said. Phelps said Hopeful Hearts has been operating for five years and vet bills are the biggest expense.

“Last year they reached more than $147, 000,” she said. The rescue, which takes in dogs from as far away as the Middle East, usually has 60 to 80 dogs in their system at one time. WALK-A-THON

Another dog-friendly fundraiser is set to happen at New Edinburgh Park on Stanley Avenue on May 4. Rain or shine, the group will get together for a barbecue, games, walks and other activities to raise money for the city’s four-legged friends. For more information on the rescue visit the Hopeful Hearts or RockRescueOttwa groups on Facebook.

Nuit Blanche is looking for local artists

For us the goal of Nuit Blanche is for people to go outside and see art differently, whether it’s on the side of buildings or in galleries ARIANE NAZROO

Visit us Online at



Justy Dennis, seated on right, is aided by fellow artists in putting the finishing touches on their yarnwrapped Para Transpo Bus in a Hintonburg parking lot. Described as ‘yarn-bombing a bus’, the work of art took five months to prepare for and served as one of the centerpeices of the first-ever Nuit Blanche Ottawa.

in their applications to participate in this year’s night-long event. “For us the goal of Nuit Blanche is for people to go outside and see art differently, whether it’s on the side of buildings or in galleries,” said Ariane Nazroo, art director for the festival. The call for artists will begin at the end of April, with those interested in applying directed to do so at The application period will last for six weeks. In the fall of 2012, Nuit Blanche Ottawa took place for the first time in the capital, as a one night-only affair based on similar events in Toronto and Montreal. The funding and organization was provided by BRAVOEst, which received a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Taking place in the Byward Market and Westboro, visitors had the opportunity to observe local art in all its forms from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m. Nazroo said the inaugural event was a success from both a resident and organization perspective, but BRAVO declined to continue participating in the event, choosing instead to focus on French-related programming. Not to be discouraged Nazroo and Megan Smith, a curator for Nuit

Blanche 2012, decided to take over the reigns. The two have incorporated Nuit Blanche and set up a board of directors, but have yet to identify a source of funding. A number of grants applied for and while they wait on word for funding, the pair have decided to donated their time. “We wanted to make sure it would happen again this year,” Nazroo said. The group will work with both cities and local organizations, including reaching out to local businesses for sponsorship opportunities. The inaugural event featured 160 projects in two areas of the city that were viewed by a total of 30,000 people. There were multiple familyfriendly events, gallery showings and performance art to visit and observe and this year, the organizers say the intention is to bring back all the success of last year and to expand the festival to include sites in Gatineau. The art director presented preliminary plans to the Lowertown Community Association on April 8. “It’s really a community-based event,” Nazroo said. “That’s why I wanted to meet with you guys.” Residents who attended the meeting were pleased with the news the event would be taking place again this year. “I remember how important and terrific last year, the first year, was,” said Norman Moyer. “The feeling was wonderful and it was such a family event.” Nazroo said having a familyfriendly event is again a priority, with a kid zone to be placed in Westboro, with those events ending at around 1 a.m. The Byward Market and downtown Gatineau would host adult-oriented events coming to an end at 4 a.m. Shuttles would move people to and from the different artist zones. Last year the shuttles were provided by 417 Bus line, but this year the goal is to partner with OC Transpo and STO to ensure more people can ride the shuttles more frequently. “We want to have three major shuttle stops and more shuttles to move people around the downtown more quickly,” Nazroo said. The Lowertown association said they would love to stay involved in the organization’s planning process and looked forward to working with Nazroo and Smith.

Manotick fire station loses ice rescue equipment Emma Jackson


On target for greatness The Ottawa Valley Curling Association Little Rocks Championships were held in Smiths Falls on March 24, and two Barrhaven boys – Andrew Kelly and Kyle Edmond – were part of the first-place squad: the RCN (Navy) Curling Club team. Little Rock curlers are made up of boys and girls ages six to 12. Previous winners of this championship include Rachel Homan (2000) and Emma Miskew (2001), who recently won bronze for Canada at the Titlis Glacier Mountain World Women’s Curling Championship which took place in Latvia.

EMC news - The volunteer fire station in Manotick will no longer have the equipment to perform off-shore ice rescues. Station 94’s one Fortuna inflatable ice rescue boat has been removed from the station now that Station 37 in Riverside South and Station 92 in Osgoode have full water and ice rescue capabilities. Gerry Pingitore, deputy chief of operations for the Ottawa fire service, said it was always expected that some stations that joined the network through amalgamation would retire their equipment over time. “When we amalgamated we left (some equipment) in service in various locations, understanding that one day as we grew...we would constantly be reviewing our deployment strategies,” Pingitore said. “Since that time Riverside South’s Station 37 has been built with full water and ice capabilities.” Pingitore said the decision was mainly for cost savings. Not only can Manotick’s Fortuna potentially be put

to better use in an underserviced part of the city, it also means the 25 volunteer firefighters who operate out of the Manotick station don’t need to be trained on ice rescue procedures. “It’s the required legislative training and the time and effort for all firefighters to train on water and ice rescue,” he said. “Now they’ll be able to concentrate on other specialties.” With water and ice rescue services in Osgoode and Riverside South, Pingitore said the difference in response time will be negligible. While Riverside South’s staff are career firefighters who operate the station 24 hours a day, the Manotick station is volunteeronly and relies on pagers to call staff to the scene. “The equipment is still minutes away,” Pingitore said. He added that Manotick’s firefighters will still be called to respond to water and ice rescue operations . “With any ice rescue, Station 94 will still continue to play a vital role to locate an access point, make contact with any victim, establish a safe perimeter and commence with shorebased rescue procedures,” he said.

Capital councillor wants extra notice for home conversions Laura Mueller

ROUTES AVAILABLE! We’re looking for Carriers to deliver our newspaper!

EMC news - Similar to a pilot project in Sandy Hill, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko is asking the city to require more checks and balances before builders are allowed to convert homes into multiple units in his ward. The request follows a brouhaha over the conversion of a home on Aylmer Street in Old Ottawa South. While the city’s zoning rules allow the single-family home to be converted to several apartments, neighbours were angry because they saw the change as incompatible with the neighbourhood. Since the changes are completely allowed, neighbours aren’t entitled to any notice, which exacerbated their frustration, Chernushenko said. Forcing builders to get site plan approval before converting a home would at least mean neighbours would have to be notified, Chernushenko said. “I know that’s not enough,” he said. There are other opportunities to address this issue in a way that changes city policy, such as through the next phase of the infill design guidelines. But in the meantime, requiring builders to file for site plan approval if homes are being converted to four or more units will be a reasonable stopgap measure, the councillor said. “I couldn’t pick one of my main communities and say, ‘Oh, that’s not affecting them,’” Chernushenko said. “The fact is we’re seeing conversions happening.” He called it a “partial delay tactic, partial

negotiating opportunity and partially a chance for the community to at least know what is happening.” The issue is a reminder to residents that they must keep informed about the type of redevelopment that’s allowed under the zoning on their street, Chernushenko said. “I guess you could say if you feel you have the right to object to something you also have the responsibility to be informed about whether it was allowed or not,” he said. Chernushenko said there is a public skepticism around zoning because of a perception the city seems willing to change the zoning at a property-owner’s request. So knowing the zoning of neighbouring properties isn’t seen as something that would necessarily help a resident understand what might end up being built there. Still, some residents have a tendency to ignore what type of development is already allowed in their neighbourhood until it becomes an “unwelcome surprise” right next door. Including Capital Ward in the conversion site plan pilot project might give longtime property owners the information they need to take advantage of the revenue opportunities they are already entitled to, whether it means selling their home or converting it to add an apartment for more income, Chernushenko said. “We see the pressures for change and the economic benefit to developers, and I have to throw in there, to individual residents who own a home and might feel like, ‘Hey, here is my chance,’” he said.

Sister legends honoured



Nepean-Barrhaven News EMC - Thursday, April 18, 2013

Hintonburg sisters Gay Cook and Grete Hale were honoured with Mayor Jim Watson’s City Builder Award on April 10 at city hall. Cook is a culinary expert known for her work as an author and food editor and writer at both the Ottawa Sun and Ottawa Citizen. Hale, a philanthropist and businesswoman, has received many awards, including the Order of Canada for her volunteer work with dozens of Ottawa organizations, including the Beechwood Cemetery and the Community Foundation of Ottawa. Hale said their family taught them that anything you give to the community, you get back tenfold. ‘That’s why our lives have been so rich and wonderful… because of the giving,’ she said.

Old organ, hymns offer comforting sounds at Sunday service


MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories plugs that looked like spools of thread and even from a distance I could see printing on them. These “plugs” often seemed to confuse the organist, who would push and pull at them, which created more wheezing, or no sound at all. One Sunday, in her frustration, she pulled and pushed the same “plug” and the whole thing came out in her hand. She simply placed it on top of the organ and there didn’t seem to be a whit of difference in the sound, even without the missing part. I noticed it sat on top of the organ for weeks before someone removed it, and it was never replaced or seen again. The yawning hole where the “plug” had once been remained for as long as we went to the Lutheran church. The foot pedals held a spe-


cial fascination for me. There were two side by side. At one time they were covered in tapestry, but they had worn away to the perfect shape of the organist’s black laced shoes, which told me she had been playing for longer than I was alive. I thought she must be very old indeed, just like the organ. Since there was no other place to put them, at special services bouquets of flowers sat on a little round disc on the side of the organ. My older sister Audrey said that was where a lamp was placed if there was something going on in the church at night so the organist could see the keys. Flowers were placed there at Easter and at Christmas and I used to think it would be nice if someone brought flowers every week. But of

course, that would never do for a staid and sober congregation like the Lutherans at Northcote. We hardly ever saw the face of the organist. Her back was to the pews and I often spent most of the service trying to count the number of big grey hairpins that held the fat bun at the back of her head. The bun hid her neck and one Sunday I got the giggles which I had trouble controlling when I thought her head looked like a turnip sitting on a narrow clothcovered shelf. Audrey had to give me a few pokes with her finger to get me to sober up. We never knew if there was going to be a choir. It didn’t seem to be organized to the point where you could expect to see the same faces every Sunday, even though once a week there was supposed to be choir practice. Who showed up on those nights depended on other events going on in the community which were considered more important. We could always count on one dedicated soul who never failed to sit in the very

middle of the little row of straight-backed chairs on the small platform at the front of the church. She often drowned out the organist and one Sunday she was singing one hymn while the organist was playing something entirely different. Both went on doing their own thing, as the minister sat in the big high backed velvet chair with is eyes closed, rubbing his

shook like a bowl of jelly, sitting beside me in our pew. But when she got the first three or four notes out, she sang like a bird. I would look around the church as if to say, “that’s my sister, you know.” The old organ, the organist who lived in Northcote and never missed a Sunday, the familiar hymns, the voices raised in praise and the tattered hymn books all created

One Sunday, in her frustration, she pulled and pushed the same ‘plug’ and the whole thing came out in her hand.

forehead. Audrey had a lovely voice, but she was very shy about singing alone. She had no trouble at the Northcote School when we belted out God Save the King every morning, but singing in church was a different kettle of fish. When she was ordered by Mother to do so, her knees

a warm and comfortable feeling deep in my heart. Like the neighbours around us, always there when a hand was needed, the sounds of the organ and the voices raised in praise, gave me a safe feeling, enabling me to shut out all else around me, and on Sunday, even the Depression seemed remote and far away.


he organist at the Lutheran church did her best, but when Aunt Lizzie came from Regina on her yearly visit, she never failed to comment on how the old organ needed a tuning. She once added, “maybe what is needed is a new organist.” Well, the chance of getting anyone to replace the organist out there in Northcote was just about nil and the possibility of getting the instrument tuned was just as remote. The woman who sat on the little swivel stool every Sunday played for the satisfaction it gave her and other than a few words of praise from the minister at the Strawberry Social in the summer that was all the pay she got. The organ looked like it had gone through the war. When I was very young, sitting right behind it, I often thought a ghost lived in it because for a few seconds after the last note was played, there was a wheezing sound come out of it, like someone drawing his last breath. There was a single row of

Cornmeal-crusted trout with jerk sauce a bold dinner choice EMC lifestyle - The delicate texture of farm raised-trout is enhanced by a light coating of cumin-scented cornmeal. As a contrast to its mild sweet taste, we’ve created a bold sauce from fresh vegetables. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 20 minutes. Servings: four, with 375 ml (1-1/2 cups) of sauce. INGREDIENTS

Jerk Sauce: • 4 green onions, sliced • 3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped • 1 sweet red pepper, cut into chunks • 3 large tomatoes, coarsely chopped • 15ml (1 tbsp) packed brown sugar • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) each dried thyme leaves, ground ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and garlic salt • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) cayenne pepper • canola oil • 125 ml (1/2 cup) chopped fresh coriander (optional) Trout: • 2 Ontario rainbow trout fillets (about 375 g/12 oz each), skin removed • 175 ml (3/4 cup) cornmeal • 15 ml (1 tbsp) ground cumin • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) salt • 1 egg • 75 ml (1/3 cup) milk • 20 ml (4 tsp) butter


Fresh jerk sauce: Place the onions, garlic and jalapeno in a food processor and whirl until coarsely ground. Add the sweet pepper and tomatoes with seeds and juice. Add the sugar, thyme, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, garlic salt and cayenne pepper. Pulse in the food processor until chunky and pepper is chopped, about 10 times. Don’t puree. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the sauce and boil gently, uncovered and stirring often, until thickened or about 20 minutes. If you’re using it, stir in the coriander. Trout: Cut the fish into serving-size pieces. In shallow dish, combine the cornmeal, cumin and salt. In another dish, whisk the egg together with the milk. One at a time, coat both sides of fish in the egg mixture and then in the cornmeal mixture. In a large skillet, melt 15 ml (1 tbsp) of the butter over medium heat. Add the coated fish and cook until golden, or about three to five minutes. Add the remaining butter to the side of pan. Turn the fish, letting the melted butter flow over the pan before placing the fish down, cooking for about three to five minutes. Remove the fish to plates and spoon the jerk sauce on top and beside the fish. Foodland Ontario

New hotel on its way to the ByWard Market Condo-hotel complex hurts heritage, community association says Laura Mueller

hotel and a reduction in the visitor parking for the condo. There will also be enough parking space for 152 bicycles and transit use is encouraged by the site’s proximity to transit stations, the city staff report says. Granger and other residents also worried the towers would interrupt the views from their homes, which is why they bought into that area.

We’re building a whole lot of towers around, but our streets haven’t changed a bit SYLVIO GRANGER

The zoning at that time didn’t permit buildings of these heights, Granger said. The city made a promise to residents through that zoning, he said, and now that promise is being broken at the request of a developer. Another community association member, Mario Gaspereti, made the argument that the extra height isn’t necessary because Claridge could hit the city’s targets for density and job

creation within the existing zoning. Grachuta said it’s a good thing if the development can help the city reach its density targets and those numbers shouldn’t be looked at on a site-bysite basis, but rather in the downtown area as a whole. The planning committee chairman, Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume, was focused on the hotel aspect of the project. Low hotel vacancy rates show that a new lodging space is needed, he said. Hume asked Claridge president Neil Malhotra to explain why the construction of a hotel, which the city desires, is so dependent on Claridge being allowed to construct a 22-storey condo tower as part of the overall project. Malhotra said it’s common for developers to combine a hotel with another project like condos because hotels are high-risk. Having something safer, like condos, helps the company secure the financing it needs to make the hotel happen. Malhotra said he wants the complex to be a positive contribution to the streetscape. The hotel restaurant will be outward facing to invite people in off the sidewalk – not buried inside the building’s interior like some hotel restaurants. Outdoor amenity spaces are also a priority, he said.

Community members like Liz MacKenzie cautioned that amenity spaces need to be designed carefully to ensure they are safe and don’t encourage panhandlers and clients of nearby shelters to settle in there. The Union du Canada building’s role in francophone history will be commemorated in the hobby of the hotel. Grachuta said Claridge wants to get together with the community to decide the best way of doing that. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathiew Fleury, the local representative, could not comment on the project due to a conflict of interest because his father works for Claridge.


EMC news – Downtown Ottawa is set to get its first new hotel in about three decades – but it’s at the expense of a heritage building, according to the Lowertown Community Association. A Claridge Homes plan to build a 22-storey condo tower on George Street and add four storeys to the Union du Canada office tower and convert it into a hotel got the thumbs up from planning committee members on April 9. Adding even more height to a 1960s building that already “sticks out like a sore thumb” doesn’t make sense, said ByWard Market resident Louise Hout. “This mistake should not be amplified by allowing an extra four storeys,” she said.

But the city already decided to allow a taller building to be constructed on that site, so nothing shorter than the original Union du Canada building would ever be built there, said Katherine Grachuta, a planner working on behalf of Claridge. Hout and other community members worried that allowing taller buildings close to the centre of the heritage district would set a precedent of allowing towers to infiltrate the historic core of the ByWard Market. The march of condo towers into the market also troubled community association member Sylvio Granger, who told the committee that the market will become “hell on earth” if more condos are allowed to bring more residents into the market without changes to the streets and sidewalks. “We’re building a whole lot of towers around, but our streets haven’t changed a bit. We’re getting more and more traffic,” Granger said. “It won’t be livable and walkable for a long time.” Claridge’s application asked for changes to parking requirements. There will be 227 underground parking spaces shared between the condo and the hotel, which includes providing no parking spots dedicated to the

Well-being of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children still lags behind drug use and mental illness that must be addressed in our society and through public policy,â&#x20AC;? said Munter. While Canada has come a long way in terms of changing its views on mental health, Munter said there is still much more that needs to be done to overcome stigma.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to talk about mental health more than we do today. We need to invest in evidence-based mental health programs that improve the lives of youth and children. We must establish mental health as a pillar of child and youth health care delivery. Doing so will help Canada make im-

portant gains to the beneďŹ t of our next generation and generations to come.â&#x20AC;? UNICEF said the current ďŹ ndings show progress, but warned that the study was carried out before many countries implemented austerity measures and budget cuts because of the economic crisis.


EMC news - A new report released by United Nations Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fund (UNICEF) paints a gloomy picture for Canadian children compared to kids in other wealthy countries. The report on the well-being of children ranks Canada 17th out of 29 countries, a score that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t improved for almost a decade. The country scored below average grades for child poverty, and obesity and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life satisfaction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that our children rank in the bottom half when compared to other industrialized nations simply isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t good enough,â&#x20AC;? David Morley, UNICEF Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president and chief executive ofďŹ cer said in a release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is clear Canada can do better. Protecting and promoting the well-being of our children must become a national priority,â&#x20AC;? Particularly concerning is that Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall ranking drops seven places to 24th when childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s views of their own life satisfaction are measured. Only ďŹ ve countries, all from Eastern Europe, rank lower than Canada in this category. Morley said listening to childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voices, even at the youngest ages, and knowing more about how they see and evaluate their own lives is critical to improving childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-being. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Considering the size and general health of our economy when compared to the difďŹ cult recessions other countries in this report have experienced, it is clear Canada is not doing enough and needs to invest more in our children.â&#x20AC;?

The report called for a clearer picture of the investment being made in children and ensuring the rights of children are prioritized in policy decisions with the use of childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights impact assessments. CHEO president and chief executive ofďŹ cer Alex Munter said he was troubled by the report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ďŹ ndings reďŹ&#x201A;ect a similar trend we have been seeing here at CHEO,â&#x20AC;? Munter said in a statement.

The fact that our children rank in the bottom half when compared to other industrialized nations simply isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t good enough. DAVID MORLEY

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Changing Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outcomes will require a rethinking of how we invest in young people and how we approach mental health as a central contributor to their well-being. It will require the engagement of public policy makers at all levels to take real action in an effort to improve outcomes.â&#x20AC;? He said the areas where Canada lags contribute to the increased complexity of childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health problems and outcomes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obesity, poverty, substance abuse and poor life satisfaction are all linked to one another and are, from our hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective, making health care delivery more complex.â&#x20AC;? The report identiďŹ es high levels of cannabis use as an area of concern. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a strong link between

ByWard Market needs independent management: report Incentives needed to protect the area’s food-retail history, consultants say Laura Mueller

EMC news - A new vision for the future of the ByWard Market isn’t really new, says the area’s councillor, but this time he hopes it becomes a reality. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said many of the recommendations in a new report, called Strengthening the Future of the ByWard Market, are ideas that made it into a similar document a decade ago – but those ideas were never realized. Things like creating a non-profit group to manage the market vendors, providing incentives for food retailers, improving safety and creating more vibrant public spaces aren’t brand-new concepts, Fleury said. Those ideas are reinforced in the report, which was drafted by consultants from the Project for Public Spaces after consulting with the public and visiting the market a couple of

times last fall. Now, Fleury is hoping to ensure all stakeholders, including community members, business groups and most importantly, all city departments are on board with putting the new plan into action. “The last report was 10 years ago, but all the main lines were exactly the same: retail, bars, homelessness, market management and parking,” Fleury said. “We couldn’t get all the departments to see the issues ... we needed that buy-in from different departments.” The possibility of establishing an independent body to oversee management of the market is something Fleury is particularly excited about. It’s a model that’s used successfully in Montreal to operate the Jean-Talon market, which Fleury visited last year while gathering observations about how districts similar to the ByWard Market operate in other cities. At the moment, operations of the vendors and market square retailers are managed by a city licensing department called markets management. “It’s a very enforcement-driven arm of the city,” Fleury said. “We’re not removing ourselves from the responsibility, but we want it to be done in conjunction with the farmers.” Incentives to protect the food-retail history of the district could include

things like tax breaks or offering parking rebates for people who show grocery receipts, the report states. Managing the market’s growth as a nightlife district – a point of contention for the neighbours and the merchants’ association – will be key, the report states. A need to address safety issues and impacts related to homelessness and services for at-risk populations are also acknowledged in the report. Many of the market’s public spaces become hang-outs for homeless people who “control the space and discourage other uses,” the report states. Project for Public Spaces emphasized in its report that “saving” the market won’t be an overnight process. Ongoing leadership, funding and cooperation between stakeholders will make or break the project in the long term. The report is expected to go to committee in May. If it’s approved, it would give city staff direction to pursue some of the ideas further. Any initiatives the city wants to accomplish will have to be part of future budgets because there is no implementation money attached to this report. The report was initially withheld because the city didn’t want to release it until there was a proposed action plan attached, Fleury said. “Now we’re re-opening it for consultation,” he said.

Pet Adoptions Domestic Mediumhair cat who is about 2 years old. This laid-back feline was brought to the shelter as a stray on February 4, but is now available for adoption.





Prince is neutered male, black Labrador Retriever and Great Dane mix who is about 9 years old. Prince was brought to the shelter as a stray on February 14, and is now available for adoption. Prince loves to meet and greet everyone. He has a preference for human companionship but may be able to share his home with another respecting pooch who isn’t intimidated by

his size. Give Prince a chance and he’d love to flaunt his social tendencies. Prince will need a family with children 12 years and older who will actively participate in helping him perfect how to keep all four paws on the ground. He will need a family that will bring him on all their adventures, as he is no couch potato. Abe is a neutered male, orange tabby


Re-investing in the ByWard Market and putting management of its market square and stalls into the hands of a non-profit group are two of the recommendations in a newly released report aimed at “saving” the historic district.


Abe loves to have his belly rubbed. He has a very calm cat with an agreeable disposition that would make a great companion for humans of all ages, as long as they are gentle with him. Abe would rather not have other cats share his space. He has so much love to give that he’ll be the only feline companion you’ll ever need!

Hello friends, I’m Mack, also known as Mackie-Noodle, Mack-Attack, Mack-a-roni, Sponge Mack-Hair-Pants, or Mister Mack. I love everybody and as such, you will receive a proper greeting when I meet you; this involves a lot of licking and then covering you with hair. I was living at a local rescue when my family came to get me in the summer, and boy am I happy to not live in a cage. I can run and play and go on great adventures everyday with my mom and dad. My feline brother is quite accommodating and doesn’t mind me eating some of his toys and playing with him in his tunnel, although I can only manage to squeeze my head in. St. Patrick’s Day is my birthday and I will celebrate it with all of my friends and family and eat as many Pup-cakes as I desire…which is a LOT!
